When I arrived back at school, I realized how little I had in my pantry or fridge in terms of provisions for the week. I’ve made a goal with my mom to eat healthy (even better than normal) 🙂 for the next couple of weeks. I know it is a process, and I am really good about healthy eating, until you put something sweet in front of me. Then when you add the pressure of holidays, well, it’s an entirely new ball game.
Well, not packing a solid lunch leads to snacking, leads to that 3:30 empty feeling and need for chocolate chips and Trader Joe’s pretzel chips later on. Deadly I tell you, deadly. And who puts a serving size of 4 measly pretzels? #nothappening
So, I made a trip to Trader Joe’s to fill up on some essentials. Let’s just say doing a grocery run right before the store closes isn’t the same as going towards the end of a farmer’s market. While I was able to get the basics (vegetables galore, milk, and all sorts of the best yogurt), all my to-go salads were gone and I ended up throwing this and that into my cart. Ever happen to you?
Some pumpkin ravioli (which I will share on WIAW because it was DEVINE!), pumpkin butter, pumpkin yogurt…November has not ended, thus the pumpkin obsession continues!
Now that I have some protein packed yogurts for breakfast, plenty of veggies to snack on, some walnuts, and a heaping bag of apples, I’ll be all set for the next few days of classes, finals, and my healthy eating plan! Wish me luck 🙂

How do you prepare to eat healthy for the week? What are some of your weaknesses? (If you don’t, I am not sure if you are human) 😉
